Knit Baby Hats {Tutorial}

Knit Baby Hats Tutorial

(allow 15-30 minutes to complete one hat)

Materials Needed:

*Small pieces of knit fabric or use outgrown baby clothes.

*Small pieces of contrasting knit fabric for the flower or a 30″ x 1/2″ piece of fabric for the ruffle.


Print off the templates below. Make sure you click on the highlighted link and print the template off from the Scribd website. Tape the two pieces of paper together making sure that the lines match up perfectly. Trim extra paper if needed to match up the lines.

Use the template to cut out two pieces of knit fabric.

Pin right sides together. Sew around edges leaving the bottom open.

Trim edges. Searge edges if you want, but you don’t have to. Knit fabric will not fray. Searging just gives it a more professional look. I don’t have a searger, so I left mine as is. Fold the hat in half to find the middle. Measure 2″ down from the top of the hat. Draw a line. Repeat on the other side of hat.

Now refold the top of the hat so that the marks you just made are on the outer edge. Pin in place like so. You are now going to sew on top of the marks you just made. I sewed using a 1/4″ sew seam here. You are sewing here just to give the hat a little more shape.

This is what the hat will look like now.

**What you do in the next step depends on the size of the hat you are making.**

If you are making a 0-6 month hat fold the bottom of the hat up 1 1/2″

for a 6-12 month hat fold the bottom of the hat up 2″

and for a 12-24 month hat fold the bottom of the hat up 2″.

Since this a 0-6 month sized hat, I folded the bottom of the hat up 1 1/2″.

Press and pin in place. Sew.

Turn right side out.

To make the flower cut 7 pieces of knit fabric into little circles.

Set up the circles overlapping like so. Just make sure that the middle circle is overlapping all of the other circles (petals) in the middle.

Pin in place.


Make a button or use a button you have on hand.

Attach the button to the petals and through the top of the hat.

Inside of hat.

And the finished product.


Now to make the ruffled knit hat.

Follow the same steps as above to make the hat. Cut a strip of knit fabric 30″ x 1 1/2″ wide. Sew ends together. Now ruffle the piece of fabric with your sewing machine. Work with the ruffled piece until it is the same length as the distance around your hat. Pin ruffle around hat about 1/4″ or 1/2″ up from the bottom of hat. Zig-Zag stitch ruffle in place. Attach a little button on the top of hat if you want.

And that is it.

They are so quick and easy to make you will never buy a knit hat again.

Plus it is a great way to use up those outgrown baby clothes.
